it wasn't hard to live from moscow these are the top stories the side of the world's worst nuclear accident threatens a new radiation leak as a lack of fun slows for progress on replacing the crumbling for novels or car because the current containment shelter was builded father of a century ago it was only man's to last twenty years. nails airstrikes hit the libyan capital once again targeting girls and obvious compounds while the rebels hope they'll benefit from the country's rich resources give that up it's gone experts warn their risk braces are likely to crash as the water itself aims to suck
up the wealth. and russia's ministry of culture under fire for boarding an innovation prize or war slammed by the majority as an act of vandalism but some praise the move saying it's a sign of a sentence or phrase society. fortune are the next we ask one outspoken british journalist why he thinks the country got involved in libya and whether it should have done so in the first place. today i'm talking to kelvin mackenzie former addicts healthy thug newspaper columnist he's spoken out against the military intervention in libya saying that maybe it's not worth an ounce of british bloods help mackenzie that's a very strong position to take i mean the government reckons that strikes prevented a massacre in benghazi so he that's worth a few persons problems and so it seems well first of all we don't know whether
there was going to be a massacre a big odyssey this is the p.r. or this was the government push this was cameron's personal speed in the end of the day this is libyans fighting libyans and who are we to say who should be running their country through when i last looked i didn't notice any libyans interfere when the cavaliers in the roundheads took place in a revolution or there as far as i could see there was nobody from tripoli wondering where in the french revolution this is a revolution quite normal the other side of got gardens mysteriously they seem to have rocket propelled grenades they seem to have. fired bullets and these are not people sitting there with the spotted gun leaning over a friend saying your did a fairly sophisticated if you take the other aspect is that the rebels themselves who i wish well although i feel very unsure about what our relationship with libya
was going to be a big lips we have al qaeda wandering around how do we know that at the end of the day they don't end up running the country we don't know anything about this. there is a justification for us doing much more than for no fly zones there is a justification when they blew up a passenger airliner over lockerbie killing our people on the ground and killing people for america there was a justification to do what i suspect russia much of the under the same circumstances which you said right we're coming in we're taking you out we're bombing the hell out of the place and then there'll be a change of regime and that will be more justifiable than this but libyan rebels did offer to intervene they also may say to intervene to me not therefore have a duty to go in and help the mobs and we don't work two to one jew tree do we owed
to our side in a revolution who is trying to grab you decide what the outcome of that war is going to be i say we have no duty while we are out there wandering around the desert there was a justification it was not for being there is no justification i prefer the russian position i prefer the chinese position i prefer the german position all of which is the same as we wish you well and we're not firing any guns away not sending in any planes what now that means you're with lucian that we pull out and leave the libyans to what could essentially be a bloody civil war it is a bloody civil war that's what happens in civil wars there isn't the point the reason that you have the word war involved in civil war is it's not called civil negotiation it is a fight and in the end i expect the rebels they will win but they don't need to win risking blubber now money but what if as he's looking increasingly likely daffy in
fact when he does outcome the rebels at the moment what if now that the international community has irreparably fallen out with him he actually face in power and again well first of all i don't care about the international community and secondly they haven't that you know they don't like him but there's lots of people they don't like i mean why they're after you why don't they. well you were at libya just go down the road a bit to the congo where literally under a thousand people are being wiped out why haven't we gone there why don't we go and protect the minority tribe be in a zimbabwean actually there's a lot of injustice in the world and maybe injustice even in this country right who knows but the issue is that there is nothing that can be done the international community is a big factor i was very what happens to the politicians is that they look around at themselves to look at this their ratings in the polls in my sorry you know what i'm not doing very well here the people who vote for me think i'm an idiot they're going to trap me you know what sort of what i would do what i want to around north africa wander around the middle east when we go into saudi arabia where they plan
march is the king is announce there will be severe repercussions for demonstrations and in the east they started firing everybody why don't we go into the main why don't we go in everywhere what's your answer to all these questions why don't we going to yemen why don't we get into syria because it's nothing to do with us we have neither the power the fire panel nor the will nor as we learned from iraq where one hundred and eighty of. good people died and probably forty billion forty or fifty billion quid went out of our coffers which we could possibly even for their profit was up with that right it. has nothing to do with us things take time and yet we have still going into libya which by you know take also has nothing to do with us is because we could have been open about gadhafi you know really is where we're a nation trying to relive the old days of the empire with cameron keep on shouting out where of all the pink bits gone you know strolling around the middle east you
know without a sign out without an exit plan we now have to go into these places we have no idea how to get out you pay institutions played a big role in rehabilitating the factory regime not so long ago and say therefore they got some nice has been labelled media now that the media has turned on him again how important is it for legitimizing an intervention like this and indeed regime change. will be i think we should divide it up into two points first of all the governments whoever they are and it's been going on now for forty odd years we have been licking garfield's backside now for for decades whether we supply arms to them or we embrace them the disgusting things that we're. but actually these people that you know the same time politicians move either way so what we're kissing could of his backside and now we're trying to kick it it's ridiculous so the media do
have a role and the role of the media is to expose that we are trading with dictators now so what does the government say they say we have to deal with the reality of political reality we have to we have to trade with these people and then somebody writes us about said we weren't so trading with problems stayed right it is pathetic absolutely pathetic but at the same time it every so often the government changes pyaar and when the government changes for how they view changes power so there's no consistency to my mind actually the media have been pretty good they've been pretty good the problem we face now is we're now at war with people i we you know want so we actually have to support our troops we don't have to support idiots like cameron got nothing else to do can't decide whether we should be wandering around all spittle in the u.k. or should we wander around the battlefields of of the middle east but we have to
have to support our troops the media gets caught in a difficult position its troops are its readers and all the center of our world. the government they're idiots and the libyan regime a disgusting so the media gets caught in a very difficult area you were the made notorious editor of the u.k. to make sure it's tabloids very proud of you to put it do you rate that so that it with tabloid culture is that thing that made wars like this easy it said sell and popularized by the british public i accept the first bit of thoreson except that the sun did spectacularly undermine excellent editorship i think though that they didn't actually make any difference to government policy i mean you know. the issue about the media is it is it is it's like the sea it's always with us you've simply got to put up with it if you're
a policymaker and all right there will be oh there will be a lot of. aggravation about libby and now i mean it started off and right we thought we were going to blow them all out of the water we'd all be home for having having a cup of tea at the ritz bar pass for well there we are down there a month later and the whole thing is still going on so the nightmare is is is still to be faced in my view but i think it's fair to blame the media for it i mean i'm personally massively hostile to the libyan infraction mainly because i saw why i've been in iraq at least things take peculiar turns which you can't really work out intellectually nor guess. nevertheless. you know i'm very much in favor of our soldiers and so you get told i but the media are stronger i think you're right about that but the media's stronger because of what happened in iraq i mean that the trouble was that a million people marched against the iraq war blair blair was not telling his
cabinet the things will be revealed now because he was scared they were going to leak so basically they were deciding it as though you and i were having a nice chat another glass of soda said oh yes it would be what you think given the office he was is a bit of a go her yes good idea someone then they went to him right so the million were ignored i people say that the government various governments not nothing from iraq and afghanistan but do you think what in fact what you learned was how to tell another military intervention no absolutely the issue is quite clear we didn't want iraq it was lumbered on us by a vainglorious prime minister. cameron is now wandering around in the desert of to brook trying to work out or get out he would look an idiot at the end of all this but beat the but the underlying issue is with libya. there have been no deaths on our side just wait if i only caught the crash and god forbid we lose ten people or
all by the way they use those heat seeking missiles which you can basically just walk in and take according to today's papers. if that happened we side being blown out of the sky don't even think about it so the issue is we haven't dropped any blood yeah we've dropped tens of millions of pounds which we haven't got but not one single one of our people is as died read let happen in the game and the p.r. game will change politically what does someone like david cameron gain from breaking a war in africa a military a war crime and so or what was in it for him or for a country he's a pro for he is unfortunately a professional bleeding hearts and so he's one of those guys who will rush around aimlessly he's a total political animal by the way rush around endlessly saying something must be done the answer is something mustn't be done it's like when you plan to send off
a really stinking his email on the night before to your boss right don't send that a mile go to bed wake up in the morning reread it as i would it was a good idea or not cameron hasn't got that ability basically i think he's gone mad he's gone mad very early he's only been in power a year now balmy is he going to be the last as long as blair blair was thirty five at the end of it all right my suspicion is that the pressure is just driven involving kelvin mackenzie thank you very much. twenty five years of fallout. from the most devastating nuclear disaster in history. a quarter of
